Good news! Europe's electric grid will still work even as the world crumbles

Scientists at Aarhus University in Denmark studying the effects of climate change on weather-dependent electricity systems have found a silver lining in Earth's otherwise fraught future outlook.

"The biggest problem with these milling tools is that the edges are so worn down after just an hour milling that the tool has to be replaced," says Assistant Professor Ramin Aghababaei, who's leading the AU part of the Cutting-Edge project.

The hunt is on: using machine learning, we’re looking for completely new antibiotics in national parks

In about 20-30 years, bacterial resistance will be so serious that it will cost more lives than cancer, even in the West. This is the gloomy prophecy from the World Health Organization (WHO), and they are beating the drum for active, targeted efforts to find new antibiotics. A researcher from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University has…

Millions for purely organic

It may well be a nice idea to buy organic, but you can never be sure that the products you buy really are 100% organic. A major new EU project is tackling this problem by making organic farms more organic.

Aarhus University invests heavily in new MSc in Engineering programmes in 2019

In summer 2019, Aarhus University will be offering three new five-year MSc in Engineering programmes and thereby opening 240 additional student places.

"We shape technology, and technology shapes us: in particular in our social relations. We must therefore make sure that progress is based on a deep insight into what it means to be human. Otherwise, we risk failing. This is a perspective in engineering research that may come to mean a great deal for our future." Professor Peter Gall Krogh, the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.
